It's semi-final week the five remaining contestants are gearing up for two performances each on Saturday night.

No doubt Anita Rani, Georgia May Foote, Jay McGuinness, Katie Derham, and Kellie Bright are still reeling from Helen George's shock exit last weekend.

Georgia May Foote will be under extra pressure given she was in last week's dance off despite being one of the bookies' favourites to win the series.

There's plenty of scope for direct dance comparisons as some of the contestants are dancing the same dance.  Favourites Georgia May Foote and Jay McGuinness are both tackling the Viennese Waltz while Jay and Katie Derham will also both tackle the Charleston.

Here's what they'll be dancing and what they'll be dancing to in the hopes of making it to the December 19 grand glitterball final...
